City of Light event

City of Light event – lighting experiences for everyone

The next City of Light event will be held 28.–30.9.2017. The program will be released in August.

Every autumn Jyväskylä hosts City of Light, Finland’s only event dedicated to urban lighting. The event provides both residents and visitors with a chance to learn about, experience and enjoy the city’s lighting, including a number of special lighting installations.

The City of Light event has attracted a great deal of interest. The event has thus improved the general knowledge on Jyväskylä as well as the City of Light project itself.

The event is an important forum for lighting professionals, and the national significance of the event is notable because it is unique in Finland. No similar events for introducing new lighting techniques and architectural lighting systems exist in Finland. This is a valuable opportunity for Jyväskylä to develop its profile as an innovative leading city in modern urban lighting systems.

Jyväskylä collaborates with numerous companies and organizations in creating the City of Light event. Both the permanently lighted areas and the temporarily lighted illuminations form vital parts of the event. The temporarily illuminated areas are designed to be experimental and they can help produce creative ideas on what lights can be used for, and inhabitants and visitors can literally see the city in a different light!
